Near the old slag dump there are the remains of the pouring buckets that received the molten steel from the US Steel blast furnaces, filled to the brim with pig iron. They must be incredibly heavy!
On the second floor of the former carpentry shop, originally the delivery wagon shed.
Broken dishes and rotten burlap, mixed with the general trash left behind after the roof collapsed on the poor house.
A typical room in Birtle.
A coveted corner office, full of former thrift store wares.
We know what the ladies’ favorite treats were! Found holding parts on a repair cart.
A tunnel that brought heat from the power plant to the Hart House. Since that building was demolished, this only served as a fallout shelter. To my knowledge, this was never used to move bodies to the incinerator. That was probably done with a vehicle and the lower entrance to the power station, which did dispose of TB victims for some time.
A ‘Hot Metal Car’ that would transport molten steel across the ‘Hot Metal Bridge’ from the furnaces to the mills.
